Critic Consensus: "Wrath" begins predictably and ends twistedly as it tidily closes out the "all-out-war" arc that's been creeping throughout TWD season 8, presenting a cliffhanger that goes against the grain of several lead characters and the series itself.

Critic Reviews for Wrath

For the first time in a long time, the story possibilities on The Walking Dead seem wide open. It's just a shame it took such a long, dreary road to get there.

We... get some excellent Ezekiel-Jerry banter, which has been missing from this season.

Well, that was kind of uneventful. There was a lot of set-up, a lot of planning, a fair amount of double-cross...

It was the end the show-if not the audience-needed, but an end not even slightly justified by the episodes leading up to it.

For AMC's assembly line to stay productive, the conveyor belt couldn't keep moving at the same speed. Sunday's resets and reboots scrapped a cycle that wasn't working, potentially correcting some of the series's most glaring mistakes.

Instead, The Walking Dead will just continue to be a zombie itself - shambling forward as long as ratings allow, without death, but without many purposes, either.

Wrath wasn't the show's last hurrah, though. It was a season finale. And as a season finale, classically when this show's at its absolute nastiest and unpredictable, it's a shame to report that Wrath was a load of old bobbins.

In its eighth season finale, "The Walking Dead" brings Negan's yearslong arc to a conclusion... the writers gave every viewer everything one could possibly want.

It was a perfunctory finish to a much maligned season.

The Walking Dead season 8 finale might have wrapped up all the storylines it had with a tidy, twee little bow, but that doesn't stop it from feeling disappointing anticlimactic.
